The proposed extension to the Stokes and Robinson hydration theory is based on the premise that H2O molecules of electrolyte solutions reside in two unique environments, the solvent environment and the hydration envelope (or sheath) environment. Changes to the chemical potential of H2O in either environment result in redistribution of H2O molecules between the environments; consequently hydration numbers of electrolytes decrease as the solvent activity decreases. An equation derived from the… Expand
A semi-empirical hydration model (SEHM) for describing aqueous electrolyte solutions: I. Single strong electrolytes at 25 °C
Abstract A new semi-empirical hydration model (SEHM) for describing electrolyte solutions is proposed. The SEHM model combines the Pitzer–Debye–Ηuckel theory with Schonert's stepwise hydration modelExpand
Molecular dynamics simulations study for the effect of cations hydration on the surface tension of the electrolyte solutions
In this work, the influence of different cations (Na+, K+, Ca2+ and Mg2+) on the surface tension of electrolyte solution was investigated using molecular dynamics simulations (MDs). The structure ofExpand
Prediction of vapor—liquid equilibria for electrolyte solution by the extended pitzer (1980) model part 1. physical interpretation of the model parameter
Abstract The single nonideality parameter of the Pitzer (1980) model was found in proportion to the hydration number of electrolytes, and was then correlated with the ionic radii by using theExpand
Model for describing activity coefficients in mixed electrolyte aqueous solutions
Most models for describing activity coefficients in ionic solutions are only appropriate for single aqueous electrolyte solutions. Extensions to mixed electrolyte solutions are rarely found and areExpand
Molecular dynamics study on ionic hydration

Hydrogen‐Bond Structure and Low‐Frequency Dynamics of Electrolyte Solutions: Hydration Numbers from ab Initio Water Reorientation Dynamics and Dielectric Relaxation Spectroscopy
Analysis of the ab initio molecular dynamics trajectories using radial distribution functions, hydrogen bonding statistics, vibrational density of states, water‐water hydrogen bonding lifetimes, and water dipole reorientation reveals that MgCl2 has a considerable influence on the hydrogen bond network compared with bulk water.

Refined electrolyte‐NRTL model: Activity coefficient expressions for application to multi‐electrolyte systems
The influence of simplifying assumptions of the electrolyte-nonrandom two-liquid (NRTL) model in the derivation of activity coefficient expressions as applied to multi-electrolyte systems isExpand
ABSTRACT Modeling the chemical equilibrium in ionic solutions encountered in industrial applications, especially in the field of hydrometallurgy, still remains an unresolved issue. The complicatedExpand
Water and Mean Ionic Activities of Aqueous HNO3 Solutions Calculated from an Extension of the Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) Model
The objective for this research was to employ the extended adsorption isotherm (EAI) to develop a predictive relationship between the activity of H2O (aw) and the mean ionic activity (a±) of aqueousExpand
Characterising lithium-ion electrolytes via operando Raman microspectroscopy
This study provides a visualisation of the electrolyte concentration gradient; a method for determining key electrolyte properties, and a necessary technique for correlating bulk intermolecular electrolyte structure with the described transport and thermodynamic properties. Expand
